Freestyle Frisbee – Word of the Day – Hein

James Wiseman Catches a Gitis.

Hein: adj. (pronounced HAYN): A freestyler, routine, or move that excels beyond expectations. Outstanding, excellent, awesome, or admirable freestyle frisbee play. Although hein is derived from the word heinous (meaning horrific), it is used to describe very positive attributes.

Hein is more than just a descriptor, it is a state of being. As with many disciplines, freestylers constantly strive to reach the next eschalon or level. One may be hein in their own state of progress or one can be hein when their unique freestyle creations inspire and awe others. In effect, as freestylers practice, jam, and compete they are striving to be hein.

Ex. “That was a Hein routine!”

Ex. “What was that hein combo?”

Ex. “Have you seen her jam? She is so hein.”
